Overview: The Ring Video Doorbell 2 instantly alerts you (on your
smartphone, tablet, or computer) when someone approaches your front door or
rings your doorbell, and lets you see and hear who it is before you answer. The
Video Doorbell 2 has a built-in camera that streams HD video via Wi-Fi, and
two-way audio to let you speak with your visitor. The Ring video doorbell
replaces your existing doorbell, and can be hardwired or powered by the included
Camera: The Video Doorbell 2 has a wide-angle lens with a
160° field of view. The camera produces bright 1080p HD video in a Live View
that you can watch on your phone, tablet, or computer. Adjustable motion sensors
let you customize the size and sensitivity of the motion detection zones. When
motion is detected, a notification will be sent to your smart device or computer
through the Ring app, allowing you to view the live video stream. Built-in
infrared LEDs enable night vision after the sun goes down.
Weather Resistant: The Video Doorbell 2 is resistant to
inclement weather and temperature extremes (-5°F to 120°F).
Installation: The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is designed to replace an
existing doorbell, and is compatible with most
mechanical or digital doorbell chimes with 8-24 volts AC transformers. Even
if you don't have an existing doorbell, you can install the Video Doorbell 2 and
power it for approximately 6 months per charge with the included rechargeable
battery. Wedge and Corner installation kits are included to help properly aim
the camera for best performance. If you're replacing an older Ring Video
Doorbell, an adapter plate is included to prevent you from drilling new holes.
Two faceplates come with the Video Doorbell 2 -- Satin Nickel and Venetian -- so
you can customize the look.

Wi-Fi connection on the 2.4 GHz band. It requires a minimum upload speed of 1
Mbps, however, 2 Mbps is recommended for best streaming performance.
Ring App: The free Ring - Almost Home app pulls together all
of your Ring devices, including Video Doorbells and Security Cameras. You can have multiple users on your Ring account, each with the ability to
view video from any of the video devices. The app
sends you an instant alert when someone triggers a motion sensor, or rings your
Ring Video Doorbell. You'll be able to see, hear, and speak to anyone on your
property using your smart device. In addition, the app lets you create a virtual
Neighborhood Watch and receive alerts from your neighbors. In the app, you can
zoom and pan for a better look, flash the lights, activate the siren, customize
the Motion Zones, times for receiving (or not receiving) alerts, and how often
to be notified for motion events. The Ring App is available for Apple iPhone,
iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 9.1 or later, and for Android devices running
version 4.4 and up. The app also works with Windows 10 and Mac OS.
